SIA to Present on Emerging Security Technologies at AFPM Security Conference

With the progression of innovative technology and the plethora of biometric data developments, it is imperative to understand how to leverage these solutions to secure your facilities and to safely and legally exchange and store data. On April 15 at the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Security Conference, the Security Industry Association (SIA) will participate in an expert panel discussion on some of the key opportunities, risks and challenges associated with emerging security technologies, such as biometrics, drones and robotic policing.

In the session “Opportunities and Risks With Emerging Security Technologies,” Ron Hawkins, director of industry relations at SIA, will join William Bryan, acting undersecretary for science and technology at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Scott Whelchel, chief security officer at Dow Chemical, to explore how security technology is transforming how the refining and petrochemical industries adapt to ever-evolving threats and the opportunities and challenges presented by security technology’s transformation and growth.

The 2020 AFPM Security Conference will be held April 13-15 at the Westin Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. Learn more about the conference and register to attend here.
